5 Best Dish­wash­ers

Ideal Home (UK) - - Contents -

All dish­wash­ers earn their keep over the busy fes­tive sea­son, but with their clever wash cy­cles, spe­cial fea­tures and even smart tech­nol­ogy (not to men­tion sleek good looks), these mod­els will be kitchen su­per­heroes ev­ery day of the year

1 The BEST FOR Big STUFF

No one likes hand-wash­ing the vases, plat­ters and bak­ing dishes that are too big for the dish­washer, so Indesit’s ex­tra-size cy­cle lets you take out the top bas­ket and stack large items in the bot­tom. It also has a soak cy­cle and 30min quick wash. DFP 27T94A W60CM DISH­WASHER, £320, INDESIT

2 The dream

Yeah, we know it’s pricey, but this re­ally has ev­ery­thing, from app con­trols to a door that opens au­to­mat­i­cally at the end of a pro­gramme so your dishes are able to dry quickly. LED light­ing makes load­ing eas­ier and the 11 cy­cles in­clude one that uses just 6.5ltr of wa­ter.

4 The head TURNER

Talk about scrub­bing up nicely – Smeg’s is surely the pret­ti­est pot washer of them all. It holds 13 place set­tings and has 10 pro­grammes, in­clud­ing Crys­tal for smear-free glasses, a 27min quick wash and Strong & Fast, which prom­ises to re­move tough dirt in less than an hour.

5 The SMART One

You can con­trol this ma­chine with an app. Tell it what you’re wash­ing and it sug­gests the best cy­cle, you’ll get alerts if you need to top up the salt or clean the fil­ter, and you can see how long a cy­cle has to run, all from your phone. WIZARD DYM 762T W60CM DISH­WASHER, £500, HOOVER
